My hair is fine and highlighted and this shampoo suits me just fine. It is quite thick, but lathers well and leaves my hair bouncy, clean and in good condition. It is moisturising, yet not too heavy.

Moisturizers - Rodial - Glamtox Night

This night treatment from Rodial contains vitamins a and c plus antioxidants from pomegranate. It started out well for me and this product. I enjoyed the light gel texture and felt that my skin appeared smooth and even in the morning. After about two weeks it was as if my skin had enough of it. The product did not absorb well, the sharp smell started to annoy me and my skin felt dry and rough in …Read more

I have tried using this product in many different ways and I have decided that it just does not work for me... This is what I have tried: 1. Using it all over as my base. This was too sparkly and gave a muddy look. 2. Using it on top of foundation. It messes up my base and goes on patchy. I do not have this problem with Clinique Up Lighting. 3. Mixed in with the foundation. This blend went on …Read more

This is the best foundation I have ever come across. It looks good on all skin types and the shades are excellent. It really is the most perfect formula. The texture is quite thick and when it goes on it fills in all my lines and illuminates the skin with light reflecting pigments. It is not only long lasting, it looks freshly applied for a good eight hours. It contains spf 15, yet does not give …Read more

Mascara - CLINIQUE - Lash Building Primer

May/09/2011

This has become a must have product for me. It really builds my lashes without any irritation from fibres. It makes my lashes thicker and longer and transforms a good mascara into an outstanding, long lasting one. It never clumps or flakes and has really improved the look of my lashes. I might keep trying new mascaras, but will stick with this primer. The other primer I used recently is by …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - REN Clean Skincare - Moroccan Rose Otto Shower Wash

This cult product was just ok for me... Sure the scent of Moroccan Rose is nice enough, but the texture leaves me cold. I am not obsessed with foam in shower gels, just as happy to use a shower oil or cream. It is just that this is a gel texture which does not foam and I am just pushing this slippery substance around... The pump dispenser is also quite hard work. Not a keeper for me.

Body Scrubs - Space NK - Laughter body polish

May/09/2011

This is a medium strength scrub for the body and I use it two to three times a week. It has fine lemon peel grains that are effective, but not too abrasive. The scrub leaves the skin clean, radiant and moisturised without any oily residue. The scent is a refreshing blend of lime, bergamot, coriander and ginger. Very much a herbal twist on a classic citrus cologne. It is quick, easy and pleasant …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Caudalie - Soin Nourrisant (body cream)

May/09/2011

I think I am on my third bottle of this body lotion. It could very well be one of my favourite body products, along with Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv body cream and a few others. The price is right, the texture is great for the morning after the shower when you need to get moisturised and then dressed. The scent is perfection, fresh, yet not too zesty, it almost has a slight masculine herbal note in …Read more

Skincare - Face - CHANTECAILLE - Flower Harmonizing Cream

My skin is quite normal, a little sensitive and a little dehydrated at times. This moisturiser changed all that and my skin became oily, clogged and prone to breakouts. I discontinued use after three weeks. I still have marks from the huge spots on my chin. I will not only not repurchase, I will never put it near my skin again.
